Sunday Worship FAQs

Sunday Morning Worship

It’s often confusing to walk into a new church. Here are some questions you might have about St. John’s:

Which service should I attend?

Two services are currently offered:  Tranditional at 9 AM in the Sanctuary and Contemporary at 10:30 AM in Sanctuary.
Due to the COVID pandemic, safety pre-cautions are being followed.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Do you prefer traditional worship with organ music, hymns, and formal choirs (adult, youth, children & handbell)? If so, try the 9 AM service.

Do you prefer informal worship featuring modern/contemporary Christian music with a praise band? If so, try the 10:30 service in Fellowship Hall.

Do you have children or teenagers classes? Nursery (birth-age 4) and children’s Sunday School (K-6th grade) is currently happening on Zoom, Sundays at 11 AM. Youth Sunday School (7th-12th grade) happens at 11:30 on Zoom.

Do you have a child with special needs? Our Director of Children and Youth Ministries, Susan Seamans, would love to speak with you about how we can best accommodate your child’s needs! Contact her at 215-357-6998. We have a place for your child!

What should I wear?

There is no special dress code at St. John’s. At the contemporary service, many people dress informally in jeans or shorts or khaki’s (others get a bit more “dressed up”), but some at the traditional services dress informally too – plus you may see some suits, jackets, ties, and dresses. What you wear is not important. What matters is that you join us for worship!

Is there anything else I should know?

The only thing you need to know is that we love our church family and we love to welcome everyone and anyone to join us!  We want to be sure to get your prayer requests and other information – and we want to begin sending you our weekly email newsletter, The Cornerstone, to keep you informed about what is happening at St. John’s!  Please call or email the church office to be added to the email list.  If you have a prayer request, please fill out a prayer request found on the homepage of our website or email/call the church office.

Our mission statement says it all: “Open Arms and Serving Hands Transforming Lives Through Christ.” We hope to see you this Sunday!
